Tim - as requested, I've got you 12 gallons of petrol, and a packet of extra long matches. When are you coming to pick them up?

Hae you read the contract? it's unusual for a contract not to have a get-out clause for both parties.

Good news! After much pestering the landlady and the agents and threatening legal action (and getting Portsmouth city council on my side) they have agreed we can end of the tenancy early with no financial repercussions! Ideal

I think the moral of the story is if you give them enough s**t you'll eventually get what you want!

Nice one. Have you got somewhere to go?

At the moment don't know where I'm going to end up! In the back of the van in a marina car park looks distinctly possible!

On the plus side it'll be cheap and close to the boat!

I'm sure one of the Portsmouth lot on here would be able to put you up.

The saga continues

It's been quite a few weeks now since we moved out. We still haven't got out deposit back! The agents I'm fairly sure are trying everything in the book to stall for as long as possible just to irritate us. The latest is they need written confirmation from all the utility companies, council etc to prove that all the bills, council tax etc were paid off. We have spent some time trying to sort this but one company won't write to us to confirm. We have told the agents this, they are now saying they want to see bank statements and credit card bills. This is verging on an invasion of privacy if you ask me! I've never heard of anything like this before, nor has anyone I've spoken to. Are they within their rights to do this or are they taking us for a ride?

Not returning the deposit is becoming standard practise these days. Landlords are withholding for the weakest of reasons, agencies are not interested, in most cases, in fighting for the tennant. Pretty shoddy in my book.
